No socializing, please
Paulina García Salinas

This project is the result of research currently underway that aims to explore the social phenomena that occur inside public transport buses in Monterrey. Firstly, Paulina sees the passengers’ marks as forms of transcendence. In some cases, these signs take the form of scribbles and scratches on the windows or signatures on the seats. Subsequently, the artist identifies the control mechanisms in the signage and the ironic way to respond by altering the inside of the buses. Hence emerges the idea of potentializing the absurdity of the control and prohibition, by using the phrase: “No socializing, please.”
